Pernambuco e Seu Conjunto - Em Ritmo de Danca (1957)

Hello, good evening! And thanks Moos for writing. Loronix was on hiatus for almost two weeks and things were really strange down here. My health has been stable; it was only a matter of accumulated work. I've been working as freelance since January and two websites I was making for my customers reached the final development stage in the last days, all together. Weird time of very hard work. I will keep the community informed as soon as the result of these engagements gets on-line. Who knows someone needs a website and hires me, helping also Loronix. Let's see.

This is Pernambuco e Seu Conjunto - Em Ritmo de Danca (1957), for Polydor, with the well know pistonist Pernambuco delivering piano playing backed by a Conjunto, surprisingly credited by Polydor. This is not the first Pernambuco album at Loronix and you should not take by mistake the percussionist Pernambuco do Pandeiro, also active during the 1950's. Pernambuco was also in charge of arrangements and some organ playing. The conjunto brings important musicians, such like the bassist Luis Marinho and the legendary Brazilian guitarrist Bandeirante. Tracks include:


(piano, organ, arrangements)
Luis Marinho
Sylvio (Tancredi?)
(electric guitar)
Pinocchio, Gilberto
